How to reach an internal web server via domain name

Here's my problem.

I have a web server (Suse Linux 9) running in my LAN, ip
We are connected through an adsl router to the internet.
I have set the routing table so http requests from the outside for\
are redirected to

My colleagues inside the lan are not so enthousiastic about the fact
that they have to type in an IP number in stead of the url.

I am running named.

I have added to 
the lines:

zone "" in {
      type master;
      file "";
      notify no;

In the directory:
I have added a text file called:
containing the following text:
$TTL 1W   IN SOA      www
                     2004100101  ; serial 
                     1D          ; refresh
                     2H          ; retry
                     1W          ; expiry
                     2D          ; minimum

         IN NS       www
www      IN A

If I type in my browser (inside the LAN of course) I get
switched to (or equivalent message, depending on the
setting of the browser) that tells me there are no results found for

Can anyone point me to the solution in this dilemma
